* Simultaneously subverted and inverted with the title theme park in the direct-to-DVD release ''Pollyworld''. The subversion is the fact that it's a theme park and not a country. The inversion is that PollyPocket's father created the theme park and named it after his daughter, making it a lot like U.S. fast food chain Wendy's Old Fashioned Hamburgers.

* In ''Literature/AMorePersonalUnion'', Ferdinand of Uceda names the new city that would be Panama City in OTL after himself when he [[spoiler: makes it his capital in the New World]]. Though everyone else takes to calling it El Dorado instead.

* The former British colony and present US state of Maryland is officially claimed to have been named after Queen Consort Mary (Henrietta Maria), wife of Charles I of England, in 1632 (during her reign), although TheOtherWiki cites some historical claims that founder George Calvert actually named the colony after Mary the mother of Jesus.

* There have been quite a few places named for UsefulNotes/JosipBrozTito {{Wikipedia}} [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_places_named_after_Josip_Broz_Tito has a list]]. Notably, however, every city named for him in the Yugoslav era got renamed to something else after the country broke up. Which happened rather rapidly after his death.

* Griffith's city of Falconia from ''Manga/{{Berserk}}''. On the one hand, it's a ShiningCity and a beacon of hope to those who wish for safety and a better life. On the other hand, it lays bare [[ItsAllAboutMe the size of Griffith's ego]] in a big way -- there's hawk, griffin and even seraphim statues all over the city. It's like a desperate cry for attention in a "Hey, look at me! Am I not fantastic?!" kind of way, a level of ego-trip that even rivals many RealLife dictators. And then the guy [[spoiler:sets himself as a God-Emperor and TheMessiah of the Holy See, and starts bringing back the souls of the dead to amaze his new subjects]]. Apparently, [[spoiler:becoming a demon god and losing his emotions]] didn't solve this guy's insecurity issues.
